Inspired by professional gear built to perform in the harshest conditions, the solid, rugged design delivers strength, slimness, and ease of use. Reduced bezel height is achieved by cutting the glass and employing a new glass adhesion method, while the Carbon Core Guard structure ensures high rigidity to realise a slimmer, more compact form.
A very special triple collaboration all about skating — G-SHOCK is proud to team up with TEAM G-SHOCK skater Kelvin Hoefler and US skateboard brand Powell Peralta.
The classic DW-5600 takes to the street, featuring a signature Hoefler graphic on the band and the Olympian skateboarder’s own signature on the case back.
Introducing G-SHOCK, the watch that redefined toughness. A developer who believed it was possible to build a watch that would not break even if dropped, challenging the wisdom of the time. In 1981, Project Team Tough was formed to build the groundbreaking watch.
Over the course of two years, the team created more than 200 prototypes. A shock-resistant structure was finally achieved. This marked the birth of a technology that is tough to the core. In pursuit of greater toughness in every respect, from structure and materials to functions, G-SHOCK has continued its unceasing evolution.
Stronger than ever, and targeting even greater strength, G-SHOCK’s challenge is never-ending.
